LEFTOVERS


We cooked the most fantastic pork shoulder this weekend. When cooking an 8 pound masterpiece there is one very special by product of leftovers. What to do with these leftovers is only limited by your imagination. One of our favorite re-purposing of pulled pork is stuffed jalapeno peppers. They go by several names like; poppers, A.B.T. (atomic buffalo turds) and armadillo eggs. What ever the moniker, they are delicious. We do not really follow a recipe but here is an outline. We take equal parts of softened cream cheese and pulled pork. We season this mixture with a bbq rub or salt and pepper. A large tablespoon is spooned into a hollow out jalapeno half. The stuffed pepper is wrapped in a half strip of bacon and secured with a toothpick. Today we cooked this with an indirect bbq fire in a covered kettle. Sometimes they are cooked in a smoker. Both methods work great. These appetizers are the perfect combination of savory, rich, spicy and scrumptious. Leftovers are a good thing.
